THE SACRED ART Of ALCHEMY

THE SACRED ART Of ALCHEMY | Social Media Training1 | Scoop.it

Much to his astonishment, C. G. Jung discovered that the ancient art of alchemy was describing, in symbolic language, the journey that all of us must take towards embodying our own intrinsic wholeness, what he called the process of “individuation.”

 

As Jung wrote, “I had very soon seen that analytical psychology [the psychology Jung developed] coincided in a most curious way with alchemy. The experiences of the alchemists, were, in a sense, my experiences, and their world was my world. This was, of course, a momentous discovery. I had stumbled upon the historical counterpart of my psychology of the unconscious.”

 

The alchemists, over the course of centuries, had generated a wide range of symbolic images which directly corresponded to the anatomy of the unconscious which Jung had been mapping through his painstaking work with... (click title for more)

(Success is) when you have discovered your innate gift or proprietary contribution to the world and you are spending all your time in that strength and almost none of your time in your area of weakness.

9 Surefire Content Promotion and Distribution Tips

9 Surefire Content Promotion and Distribution Tips | Social Media Training1 | Scoop.it

... While it is all too easy to think of blasting, or distributing content, any good strategy involves a mix of in and outbound tactics (plus, no one likes to be on the receiving end of a mass blast). This means finding ways to get the word out, but also drawing people in, via links and SEO, for example, to bring them back to a hub such as your website, micro site or landing page – where you can capture their info and convert them, or at least nudge them along to the next step in your sales cycle. The most effective campaigns combine the power of online content and social media marketing; they spring from content that is compelling and optimized for online, and use social media as a way to reach your customers....

Is the Internet making us dumber? (Nope, just different)

Is the Internet making us dumber? (Nope, just different) | Social Media Training1 | Scoop.it

In Ger­many, scores increase by about 3 IQ points each decade. In fact, the tests have to be adjusted every few years to keep up.  The aston­ish­ing upward trend in IQ lev­els is known as the “Flynn effect,” named after Amer­i­can polit­i­cal sci­en­tist James Flynn…

Devel­op­ing coun­tries such as Kenya are also mak­ing gains. Saudi Ara­bia, on the other hand, is mak­ing less progress — Flynn sur­mises this is because being sub­si­dized by petrodol­lars pro­vides lit­tle moti­va­tion for learning…

The fact that peo­ple are scor­ing pro­gres­sively bet­ter on IQ tests, Flynn says, doesn’t rep­re­sent bet­ter cog­ni­tive skills so much as it expresses a mod­ern, sci­en­tif­i­cally influ­enced way of think­ing that can bet­ter take hypo­thet­i­cal and abstract sit­u­a­tions into account…

People often comment that the increased availability of information on the internet has made people "dumber." Some statistics show that this is not necessarily true. Is this reasoning reliable?

Thanks to dear friend and former outstanding Vistage Chair Jennifer Sert @Agility3Rl for sharing this article.


Suzanne Livingston's work with Vistage Chairs and other facilitators of C-Level groups focuses on "Unique Contribution."  What is it that I or you bring that is unique from all others based on how we think, who we are, what we do and all aspects of our lives summarized under culture and life experience.


When it comes  to reputation, it will be demonstrated and observed through our performance.  Our level of competence. Being in the learning mode, that is life long learner over the knowing mode.


As social/herd/pack animals what has been my/our contribution to the improvement of the human experience in our work, in our community, and in our contribution to fellow man?


Lee shares:


"A person’s reputation influences how others relate to and interpret that person. We are not privy to the processes by which others create us in their reality. This process of constructing social reality goes on around us interminably. People create the meanings of things (and of other people) in their talk about them."

 

"If you want to participate in the worlds thus constructed, you have to acquiesce to the realities that people construct for their minding of the world. We are born into influence. We have to live in influence, whatever direction it takes. We can participate in it consciously or not. But we cannot stop it. We cannot unilaterally control it. We may try to influence the worlds of others. But ultimately your reputation does not belong to you. It belongs to those who construct it in their talk about you."

 

"You are who you are primarily because that’s the way people see you. In the same way, the world is what it is because that’s the way we have been influenced to see it."

Even the most social-savvy business owners can get caught up in the numbers game: counting and recounting likes, followers, fans, retweets, shares. Not to say those numbers don't correlate to how well your business connects with customers online, but 100 shares doesn't necessarily mean 100 sales — and it certainly doesn't measure the potential value of those 100 shares. For example, were any of the 100 fans sharing that post actually influencers? Did the fans in question sign up for your list, or share and forget? Are your likes and follows actually impacting your sales? Many business owners wouldn't know how to start answering those questions....
